Re: Advice on a Caribbean Cruiser

One word of caution: A former Caribbean charter boat in your size and price range is likely to have a lot more wear and tear than a similar age boat that spent its life in the Northeast. Expect, for example, the engine to have several thousand hours with proportional wear and tear on everything else.

The wear and tear on a two-way "delivery" trip between the NE and the BVI pales in comparison (assuming no mishaps!).
